that we could not earn or claim a right to ... without the sacrifice
that Christ made at Calvary. Yet while we are eternally thankful for
His grace ... there will be other that will reject His love and grace.
1 Peter 2:3
If so be you have tasted that the Lord is gracious.
1 Peter 2:8
To you therefore which believe he is precious: but to them which be
disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made
the head of the corner,
And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offense, even to them which
stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.
